Kris Letang scores game winning goal in overtime! Penguins beat Islanders 3-2
The Penguins and Islanders played back and forth type game, with 3rd period seeing shots from both teams but none hitting the back of the net. The game went into overtime, where Kris Letang scored the game winning goal (Sidney Crosby and Phil Kessel fed him a beautiful pass). Kris had 1 goal and 1 assist, with a total of 2 points this game.
Everyone was watching to see how the Pens would respond following a 7-1 loss to Washington on Wednesday. And overall, it was a good, solid effort. It wasn’t their best or most consistent game, but it certainly wasn’t their worst. It was capped off with a tremendous play by Sidney Crosby and Kris Letang during overtime. Crosby faked a shot and stepped around the Isles defender to find Letang at the side of the open net. It was fantastic to see those two step up and get the team a much-needed win.
